People's Project Awards - we won!


We are delighted to announce, during the first week of June 2023, we won a public vote to secure £68,276 of National Lottery funding as part of this year’s The People’s Projects. The money was awarded after we won the public over with our plans to support adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, sexual violence and rape. Our project, named the SHE-roes Lounge and Peer Group, is a weekly session for survivors to undertake self-development courses, connect with others and take back control of their lives to reach their ambitions and goals.

Our bid was one of five groups in Calendar South ITV region to compete for a share of a life changing £4 million in National Lottery funding. Each of the groups had their projects featured on prime-time TV, giving the public a chance to see their fantastic work and then make the tough choice of where the money should go.

After being chosen by voters from across the region, S.H.E UK will use this new funding to continue their work to bring people together, strengthen their local community and make a difference to people’s lives across Nottinghamshire.

Lisa Lenton, Chief Executive at S.H.E UK said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have taken part in The People’s Projects this year. It has provided us with a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of the work we do, and we can’t thank the public enough for getting behind us and giving us the opportunity to make our community a better place for all. This funding will enable us to offer survivors a long-term service – a place where they will replace anxiety, low self-esteem, and a lack of confidence with positivity and self-belief for the future. The group isn’t traditional group therapy, it’s more dynamic than that – it is a place for survivors to understand the effects of trauma, learn coping strategies, positive mindset, amongst other things, and move forward on their healing journey.”

Thank you to all of you who voted!
